Welcome to the GIS research guide from the Seattle U Library!
In this guide, we've highlighted resources that will help you find web based GIS sources. Use the tabs at the top of the page to find sources by geography: local, state, national and international. Most of the links are to social science resources.
This guide is just a list of resources. The library does not provide in-depth help with GIS. Please contact your instructor for additional help.
"A GIS is a computer system capable of capturing, storing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information; that is, data identified according to location. Practitioners also define a GIS as including the procedures, operating personnel, and spatial data that go into the system." From USGS
